Chester’s 2020 season is finally set to get underway on Monday, August 10.
The behind closed doors meeting had been fixed for Sunday, August 9 with Windsor booked for the following day.
However, following discussions with local government, the British Horseracing Authority has announced the two courses have swapped days.
The switch has been made to minimise the risk of gatherings around the racecourse at Chester which may take place at weekends. The track is on the edge of the city centre.
